Mold Removal

The growth of mold is a common, yet an extremely serious problem for countless homeowners in the US. Mold is a contaminant that can enter a house through various ways, including your doors and windows, HVAC systems, and even your clothes. It is an invisible, microscopic organism that grows in damp and dark places.

If mold enters your house, it will take less than 72 hours to breed and spread across the entire house. Mold is an extremely fast-growing organism, so treating a mold infestation in a house can be a tough process.

I suspect you have a mold infestation in your house, don’t wait any longer and call for professional help. Mold Removal and remediation companies provide homeowners with a mold inspection and cleaning services to help protect against harmful pathogens.

However, dealing with a mold invasion in your house requires quick action. To minimize the damage, here is what you need to do till help arrives.

Do’s and Don’ts When Waiting for Mold Removal Services

Do’s

  1. Restrict the area where there is mold. If it is confined to one room or a few walls, do not go near it – especially your kids, pets, or any of your family members in that room. Mold can be very harmful to health, and you don’t want to take any risks.
  2. Turns off your fans and air conditioners (HVAC systems). Mold travels through the air, and the HVAC system is their biggest entrance point. You can contain a mold infestation by shutting down any equipment that allows air movement in and out of the house.
  3. Mold usually grows when there is moisture. If you have a mold infestation, there is likely to be a leakage in the house somewhere. Try to find the water source and try to stop it. However, if you think you can’t fix it yourself, try not to take any action for it. Just let it be, and inform the experts as soon as they arrive.

Don’ts

  1. Most people try to cover mold up with paint, which is useless and a waste of money. The painting will only temporarily cover the mold up from the walls, but the danger of the harmful pathogens will stay in your house.
  2. Do not spray any disinfectant on the mold yourself. There are proper measures that professional mold remediation experts take for cleaning mold. Try to avoid taking any measures yourself.
  3. Don’t dry the area. As we mentioned above, once the mold has spread in your house, there is no point in you taking reparation or preventative measures yourself – wait for professional help to arrive.
  4. Do not touch the mold yourself. Mold is very dangerous and harmful to your skin and body, especially if ingested. Avoid going near the mold altogether.
  5. Do not blow air on old or any surface with visible mold. This can be dangerous for your body and increase the chance of mold spreading through the air.

The best step to take in case of a mold infestation is calling for professional help. You cannot try and get rid of mold yourself. It requires professionals who know what measures they need to take  – not only to keep your house clean but also to protect themselves from the contaminant. Hence, in case of a mold infestation in your house, call a home restoration and mold removal service ASAP!
